We treat our students with the dignity and respect they deserve and provide them with more opportunities than ever before to be part of the local community. We have centres in Carshalton, Hackbridge, New Malden in Surrey, Wandsworth, Camberwell Green and Uxbridge and we were graded by Ofsted as Grade 1 (Outstanding) in December 2013.
